Amazon and eBay repricing tool RepricerExpress has released new features including enhanced Buy Box information, customization of "Price War" detection, more detailed product information and advanced filters.

Amazon sellers using RepricerExpress can now see detailed information about Buy Box performance from the dashboard, including which products are Buy Box winners, which are Buy Box eligible, and which recently lost the Buy Box. 30-day Buy Box percentages are also shown.

A new feature called "Product Status Preferences" allows sellers to define the parameters for flagging Price Wars, best sellers and low stock. Different parameters can be set for different marketplaces.

RepricerExpress also now shows much more detailed product information including pricing history, Buy Box performance, competing sellers and sales performance.

Finally, products can now be filtered according to sales, sales rank, category, Buy Box performance and more.

The company has new pricing strategy automations planned for release in the next few weeks, such as automatically moving to a more agressive repricing rule if long-term storage fees are due to take effect, or changing to higher pricing for products which are winning the Buy Box but have low stock.

Chris Dunne from RepricerExpress said, "We're constantly listening to our customers' feedback and the overriding request is for better data that can be automatically actioned to help sell more without constant checking of sales info etc. For example, by auto-detecting price wars, sellers will be able stop repricing down and avoid selling needlessly at low prices. Another common scenario will allow us to auto-detect stock that's due FBA long term storage fees and push to more aggressive rules, so that stock can be sold off before further fees are incurred."

Multi-channel ecommerce management solution Cloud Commerce Pro now supports using Amazon FBA to fulfill orders from other channels.

Users who are already storing products with FBA to fulfil Amazon marketplace orders can now use that stock to fulfil orders for other channels, a practice known as Multi-Channel Fulfilment (MCF).

Cloud Commerce Pro can be set to always fulfil orders from Amazon stock, or it can be done manually as and when required e.g. if there isn't sufficient stock in the seller's own warehouse.

British multichannel management solution StoreFeeder has added a set of warehouse management (WMS) features to its platform.

StoreFeeder's WMS features complement its robust multichannel inventory and order processing suite. The new features include fully traceable stock adjustments over multiple stock locations, and multiple location types, with internal adjustments and an Enterprise-focused API to facilitate external links.

StoreFeeder's Enterprise customers can now reduce their reliance on third-party WMS systems, and save potentially thousands of pounds per month.

New features will continue to be added over the course of the next six months, including consolidated tote picking - traditionally the reserve of expensive systems in very high-volume operations.

"Our Enterprise customers have seen huge savings already," said Karl Ciz, StoreFeeder's Head of Sales, "the new WMS features mean that customers can now benefit from a single system to replace multiple systems, saving time, complexity and cost".

StoreFeeder was acquired by the Royal Mail Group in February 2015.
